One week from today is #GivingTuesday, a national grass roots movement to inspire giving back – not only during the holiday season– but throughout the year.
There’s already a buzz in the air this week at Flexware Innovation. Our annual Giving Challenge has kicked off and will come full circle in just a few short weeks on the evening of our annual Christmas party, when we get to share stories of how groups of FlexDogs chose to give back during the month.
Paying it forward within our immediate community is a big part of who we are at Flexware. At the core of every FlexDog is a helpful heart. Whether assisting clients, team members or those in need within the community, giving is something we all enjoy, especially when we get to give as a team.
Finding meaningful ways to give back helps all of us grow as well. By sharing goodwill with those around us, we are bettering the world one act of kindness at a time. It’s invigorating and inspiring.
Here’s a few fun pictures from our 2014 Christmas party. After sharing our individual giving stories, we had an impromptu additional challenge – to give away $1000 with a two hour period as a team!
Together we set off within Indianapolis and had to decide as a team how to give away the funds within a defined time period. It was a whirlwind evening full of smiles, hugs and a few tears of joy. It was truly an evening filled with magical holiday spirit and heartfelt goodwill that none of us will ever forget.
We’d like to challenge all of our FlexDog friends to think outside the box this holiday season and find a new way to give of themselves, whether through time, talent or treasure. We bet it will put a spring in your step and a smile on your face.
Be inspired this #GivingTuesday and all year round. All it takes is one small simple act of kindness to change a life.
